Aston Villa v Liverpool: Updates, team news and football banter

Liverpool at home isn't exactly a game I look for when the fixtures come out, I'm looking for top four sides and local derbies. Liverpool however is one of those teams we should be competing with for a place in the higher part of the table, so it's a match of some importance.

You see, you could argue that this is a six pointer. Winning today means we are three points ahead of Liverpool and our goal difference would likely mean that even if they won their game in hand, we'd still be above them.

And we can win this. And if the home support are as vocal as we all know they can be, then it is very much in our hands. Eleven against eleven this is one of the tighter matches we will face this season.

And Liverpool fans will say that isn't true and they'll point to one or two players, but then we can also point to one or two players. It evens itself out and as I wrote above, it's tight.

Updates and team news

As soon as we have team news it will come and there will be updates throughout the day from this match and others.

And if you haven't got on my bet of the day, it's Fulham and us to win. The returns for a double were 13/1 at PaddyPower yesterday here and there is every chance you might even get more today.
